Living Room Couch Make-over

Pillows by Laura Bray
Like most people, we are trying to cut costs around here.  Do I want a new couch?  Yep.  Can I justify getting one right now?  Nope.

So the only answer is to drag out the sewing machine and change out the pillows to give my current couch a new life. I've done this about 3 times and I'm always amazed by what a difference it makes.

I used Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush fabric to create my pillow.  The green brocade fabric on the larger pillow is fabric my grandmother gave me, and the lace on one is from an old table runner my mom gave me.  I think the pillows look very "Granny Chic".  I'm pretending I bought them at Anthropologie.
